At the close of the December 18, 2019 public hearing on the proposed 2020 Municipal Budget, Lebanon City Council took action to adopt the budget including authorizations for the City Manager to:
- issue bonds or notes to finance 2020 capital improvements
- apply for Clean Water State Revolving Fund Loan(s)
- establish a Dana House Restoration & Maintenance Capital Reserve Fund
- establish an Accrued Benefits Liability Expendable Trust Fund
- rescind prior authorization and transfer funds back to the Recreation Public Facilities Impact Fees account
As part of the approval of the Capital Improvements Fund Budget, funding was approved for City Hall renovations.
With funding approval finalized, all City Hall Offices (City Manager, City Clerk, Planning & Development, Assessing, Finance, and Human Resources) will be relocated to 20 West Park Street, Lebanon (formerly Citizens Bank).
To facilitate the move, City Hall offices will be CLOSED ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 9, AND FRIDAY, JANUARY 10, 2020; and will REOPEN ON MONDAY, JANUARY 13. Should a weather event be forecasted to occur on those dates, the relocation will occur on Tuesday, January 7 and Wednesday, January 8, 2020 with city offices reopening on Thursday, January 9.
**NEW** Please be aware that the Planning and Development Office will also be CLOSED on Wednesday, January 8 - Friday, January 10, 2020 and will reopen on Monday, January 13 in the new location.
Offices will remain at 20 West Park Street for the duration of the renovation, which is anticipated to be completed by October 2020. Office hours will remain as they are now, Monday-Friday, 8:00am – 4:30pm.
What about government meetings? All government meetings currently held at City Hall will be held in meetings rooms at 20 West Park Street, unless noticed for a different location.
